There could be two very different approaches that Arsenal will face at Old Trafford tomorrow, with some fans expecting Jose Mourinho to set his Manchester United team up to stifle the space and frustrate our fluent, and creative attacking football, while some including our veteran keeper Petr Cech thinking that Mourinho will have to be more adventurous as he is already six points adrift of us and eight points off the top of the Premier League table so a draw would not be all that much use to him.
I can understand the thinking of our number one but I am struggling to see Maureen completely abandoning his defensive and spoiling principles, especially as they have served him so well in the past. He also knows that the Gunners have the ability and the players to take full advantage of an open game, so I think he will try to win without throwing too many players forward.
If United do get the first goal then I reckon we will then see him park the bus, whereas if Arsenal score first he will have to be more forward thinking, so that opening goal could be crucial and if it does not come our way early on then I think our players have to be patient.
Many times in the past we have been punished for chasing a goal and it would be bad enough for us to get just a point from the game, never mind nothing at all. Do you think this big match will need patience and perseverance from Arsenal?
